If you've ever wondered why Pete 'n' Dud were once the kings of British comedy, this movie is a good place to start. The script is tight, the performers were at the top of their game (except for Cook, who is more subdued than his usual relaxed yet manic self), and the story includes both bouncing nuns and a touching friendship. Bedazzled was as far ahead of its time as its remake was behind it. In re. remake: don't. Just don't.

Moore and Cook have penned a side-splitting satire that manages to skewer religion, politics, and consumer culture all at the same time. Cook’s silver-tongued Satan is a perfect blend of mischievous imp and heartless capitalist who takes great pride in his work whether he’s swindling old ladies, stealing souls, or simply taking a hammer to a shipment of bananas. Aided by the Seven Deadly Sins (including Raquel Welch as a convincing Lust) he runs the Rendezvous Club, a sleazy vice joint with no shortage of clientele. In the role of the naive and bewildered Stanley, Dudley Moore provides the perfect foil for Cook displaying the flexibility and sense of timing that made him a comedic mainstay. A cheeky satirical romp whose flamboyant performances and sparkling script have managed to withstand the test of time.

Good comic stuff for it's time, but has not stood up well. The low production values are also apparent.

This is one of the best examples of comic genius out there. The modern remake was a farce, but this is pure gold. British Humour at it's highest, and one of my favourite movies of all time.
